Unhappy Breathing problems after Laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication. Help!!

I am a 37 year old woman with a thin build. I had the surgery two weeks ago. They also fixed a slight hiatal hernia. I am having a tight, constricting feeling in the area below my breast bone. Because of this tightness, I am having a hard time breathing. I can get a deep breath but it takes quite a lot out of me to do it. I feel tugging/pulling when I try to breathe. This doesn't seem like a normal side effect to the surgery and I am scared. Could someone please help me understand what is going on and what I can do to help this? I need to get my life back for myself and my family. Thank you very much!!
